Wait one more weekend before stashing away the patriotic garb.

Young Amer­icans for Freedom and Campus Rec are holding their first freedom run Sunday at 2 p.m., starting at Simpson Residence’s parking lot. The less-than-one-mile race fea­tures prizes for the best patriotic cos­tumes not the faster runner. The event encourages campus coop­er­ation as well as health and wellness, said junior Mar­garet Odell, a Campus Rec staff member who orga­nized the event.

“Campus Rec is not just an iso­lated orga­ni­zation; it’s part of campus, and in order to promote that campus-wide vision, I wanted to partner with an orga­ni­zation on campus that hon­estly is also part of campus,” Odell said. “YAF is the first thing I thought of.”

YAF Pres­ident junior English Hinton said the race will end at Central Hall and have free food and other activ­ities, including a photo booth and an “all-American-themed” obstacle course.

There will be no fee to par­tic­ipate in the race, and the first 110 people to sign up will receive a free T‑shirt. Odell said stu­dents can sign up in the Grewcock Student Union on Thursday and Friday.
